Sideburn – Sweden made Stoner/Doom with blue notes
With so many great bands coming out of Scandinavia alone, it´s easy to miss out on some pearls. This is my excuse for not having written about them earlier. The quartet of Sideburn got their fourth album “IV Monument” out and really impresses with their rocking Stoner Rock/Doom Metal spiced with sweet blue notes. Hailing from Sweden, Morgan and Jani from Sideburn gave us some time to introduce themselves to you. >> more/mehr

Sinplus: Inspiration in abundance!
The two Broggini brothers Ivan and Gabriel do not belong to the category of Swiss musicians who are being underrated considering their skills. Despite their success they have kept their feet on the ground and are very much down to earth. They are nice guys whom one wishes unmitigated success. Those who follow the Eurovision Song Contest should already be familiar with the band, because they contested for Switzerland in 2012. Presently, they have just released their second album “Up To Me” (here the review ) and they’ve been busy playing support shows, such as this night at Z7 supporting Daughtry (concert report here ). This has surely been the first interview that I conducted in the open air, apart from festivals, where chances are that you’re being interrupted numerous times. Therefore the interview turned out slightly shorter than originally planned. Anyway, the chat with the Italian-speaking guys who added all efforts to speak German - which they mastered successfully - was great fun. They may not regard themselves as professionals in this business, but in my mind, they have all the potential required: Good music, charisma, and the ambition to do whatever it takes, to be able to do what they love the most - music! >> more/mehr
